Candy anyone?

Okay, here's the deal. We'll be getting lots of media interest as well as new eyes on our site in the next couple weeks. And we need YOUR help to inspire them all! The more people they "see" interested in OWH, the more likely they are to do stories or join in as cardmakers, so comments and likes are KING! Everyone's been doing great on Facebook (more "likes" would be even more awesome), but our blogs haven't been seeing the love, and our YT channel and videos have very few likes or comments, even though we know you tell us you love them.

The new million-card video needs to have lots of views, "likes", and comments....and the million-card blog post is the one we'll be directing media to see what the millionth card is all about. We want them to be able to read comments from all across America about what this project has meant to YOU - cardmakers, families, heroes! Let's see how many we can get in a weekend...we know on bloghops they get up to 200!

So....on Sunday night, we'll draw a winners for 2 prize pack from comments on both of those. That means if you comment on both, you get TWO entries! And it can even be the same on both.  (We know candy does wonders 'round here, LOL!)

Ready, set, comment! *grin* Then get back to making cards - we have a 2nd million to start on!

The million card countdown on the video was just awesome. That is a lot of love we have offered up to the troops so they can share the love with family and friends. It has been a pleasure for me to make cards and meet new online friends. I am hoping that maybe I will hear from a hero or card receiver somtime.

Wow! A million cards is amazing! I hope you continue to get lots of media coverage and recruit tons of new carmakers! I'm a newbie working on cards for my frost box to send to Dixie! Goal was to mail it today but trying to get in a few more Father's Day cards before shipping =)

I'm proud to have played a small part in contributing to this great cause and so pleased to see that we've reached a milestone with a million cards made! To those who operate OWH, you're all heroes in my eyes and you too deserve recognition for all of your efforts to keep these cards flowing to OWH and on to our military serving overseas! You ladies and gentlemen rock!!! Each and every one of you!!!! Congratulations and high fives!!

I could not find a place to comment on the millionth card video, but I just wanted to say that as Sandy's always do, it broght tears to my eyes. Also, It's always awesome to see Ciara hard at work for the cause:). Thanks so much for making me feel like an important part as a cardmaker for OWH in reaching that millionth card goal. It makes me feel closer to my son serving in Afghanistan and that will always be something we share, that you gave to us. God bless you OWH!!!

Great job on all that you do! One million cards is quite an accomplishment.

No need to add my name to the drawing, I just wanted to stop by to say thank you.

Donna Hanley  – (May 15, 2011 at 4:09 AM)  

YAY for one million. I'll bet we can make the next million even faster. I'll do my best to try to help. It's an honor to work with you making cards.

Just A Pac Rat  – (May 15, 2011 at 6:43 AM)  

Congrats again on the one million, so happy I was a small part of it. Such a wonderful cause that helps 1000s of people both military and not by sharing our love of crafting. On to the 2nd million!

WOWZA!! what a milestone! CONGRATS to OWH, all the "staff" and all of us cardmakers, but mostly congrats to the heroes and their families.
I know my part is small when compared to others, but I do the best I can considering my disabilities, and I will continue to do so!
